Professional Development

We believe that educators are professionals, and we treat our members accordingly. That’s why MAE works to meet the needs of all educators through 
our timely, targeted, and meaningful professional development classes.


We're the only educator association with full-time lobbyists working with the Legislature to advance educator interests and defeat potentially harmful legislation.


We represent and defend our members with local and national support: liability insurance, legal defense funds, and attorney assistance.


MAE is an association of members composed of Mississippi elementary and secondary teachers, higher education faculty and staff, educational support professionals, retired educators and college students preparing to become teachers. MAE is the oldest and most powerful education association in the state.

Our fundamental objective is to work for improved salaries, benefits, and working conditions for all education professionals, as well as for the betterment of the Mississippi state education system.


Mississippi Association of Educators advocates great public schools for every child by empowering members, providing services and promoting parental/community involvement.


We imagine the day when ALL of our students graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college or in their career.


We are educators focused and devoted to creating a public education system worthy of our students’ potential.
